    Wasn't sure whether you meant 500 for the card, but I definitely suggest the 7970

    HD 7770 is NOT an upgrade from the HD 6850.

    Any i5 + ~$100 Z77 mobo + GTX 760 will get you what you're looking for.
  6. So pretty much the gtx 760 is the better buy, over the Radeon hd 7970 GHz Ed.
    Due to cost. Or is it worth buyin the 7990 for 80 bucks more.

    Am also looking at this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130944

    Just cant make my mind up on which one to buy. :)
